ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is Adriana, and though I have a nickname, an American friend has told me I have a beautiful name, and uses only my full name. I am a woman, a dreamer who has a passion for life, and loves writing, and I must say, that I breathe words in and out.

I started writing in 2003, as I was internally urged on to do so. Poetry is a natural outcome of my life, and I felt that I was guided or maybe even destined to write, a feeling that took over and could not be stopped.

I love writing all types of poems and am glad when emails arrive from other people on the web, telling me that I put into words exactly the way they feel. Helping people is a nice way to forget about one's own personal problems and keep on going. Another reason that I have been writing is to improve my English. As English is not my native language, writing in English is another way to be even closer to this beautiful language. It has always come so naturally to me, that I can consider it a gift from Heaven.

I was born and raised in Brazil. In marriage, I spent some time in the USA with an American citizen. Sadly though, it did not work out, and I returned to my native land, Brazil. Memories of the time I lived there are nice, and one day I hope I am able to go back to that beautiful country to visit and enjoy all the good things it has to offer.

Teaching is what I do as an occupation and have a love for it, while writing is not only my love, but a hobby and a friend as well. As life's trials come I realize just how blessed I am in God and that He is everything to me.

My children are grown and are young adults now. One is currently living in Italy and works as an Architect, and the other is a psychologist and lives here, in S„o Josť dos Campos.

Soon, I will be a grandmother and will continue writing poetry and enlighten people's lives with my gift.

My ultimate dream is to have one of my original poems used as lyrics in a song, and then hear it on many radio stations.

Follow Your Dreams
Dri

Follow your dreams

even though you are uncertain

and you have no idea

where they might lead you...

Follow your dreams to romance and love...

even though people say you're crazy

no, never give up...

I'm telling you:

dreams do come true.....

they are the best medicine,

an oasis to make us alive

When life is so insecure

mainly when you don't know

which way to go,

Just follow your dreams

and believe me

impossible as they may be,

they'll lead you somewhere

A place where you'll find

the reason to be alive

When teardrops roll down your face

Thatís when dreams make sense

To let you know

life is a wonderful journey

Where miracles are performed and dreams

do come true.....

Dreams are essential

for a healthy lifestyle..........

Dreams are what motivates us to keep on going......

For to have no dreams is to have no hope
